One last comment... (my apologies for three repeats in a row. I keep thinking of more things to add.)

There has been some discussion about kharmic retribution and other, ahem, interesting ethical theories. I would just like to point out that in my years of employment since graduating college, I have paid the US government far, far, far more than I ever received in aid.

So if you believe in the kharmic thing, then the world owes me, big time. The small investment that the government made in sponsoring my education has reaped tremendous dividends via the income taxation system.
